Hypnotic. Warm. Organic. Tumbling. Pastoral. Ramshackle. Blissful. Expansive.
These are just some of the words that have been used to describe the work of Mtendere Mandowa, better known as Teebs.
A producer, a painter, and a key member of Brainfeeder clan, recent years have seen Teebs surge toward the top of the so-called “beat scene,” and though his affiliation with Flying Lotus certainly has something to do with his ascent, it’s ultimately the music – a billowing brand of beautifully off-kilter, hip-hop-colored beat construction – that has set Mandowa apart from what has become an increasingly crowded field of like-mind producers.
